Advancements in video technology and portability are driving an increase in projection adoption in a wide range of markets. Projectors are changing the visual landscape and enhancing everything from digital signage, interactive gaming and advertising to lectures in the classroom. Earlier this year, Casio America, Inc. announced the creation of a mercury-free, laser and LED Hybrid Light Source, capable of high-brightness projection for use in next-generation projectors. Developed under the companyâ€™s â€œclean and greenâ€? concept, the new projectors eliminate the need for mercury bulbs with the production of a long-lasting light source. Today, Casio is showcasing its GREEN SLIM line of projectors, the worldâ€™s first* mercury-free high-brightness data projectors, during InfoComm 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the Central Hall, Booth #C5870.

I just came out of a spirited demo of Da-Lite‘s Affinity line of 1080p video projection screens put on by video producer/projection expert Joe Kane, who asked Da-Lite some time ago to design the Affinity concept in order to allow him to demonstrate what, from his point of view, true 1080p looks like on a big screen when projected by a suitable projector (in this case, Kane’s personal, single-chip, 1080p DLP projector made for him by Samsung) onto a screen unencumbered by the typical impurities that, from Kane’s perspective, ruin the viewing experience. more…

My visit to Epson‘s booth (4127) this afternoon continued what appears increasingly to be a highlight trend for me at InfoComm 09: education. Epson is making a big push with brand new products largely focused on that market. I saw the new, very bright PowerLite Pro Z8000WUNL—possibly the brightest projector ever from Epson, targeted at auditoriums and conference halls. Epson officials, however, told me that the demo of the projector overhead at their booth has also drawn interest from theater folk this week, including guys from the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, in Epson’s California back yard. more…

Canon has a cool demo going on at its booth (5249) for the next generation of the Realis WUX10 projector. The WUX10 Mark II D prototype (expected to ship in October), in DICOM Simulation mode, is being promoted specifically for medical teaching (not diagnosis, the Canon guys emphasized out of an abundance of caution) applications.
The demo (1920×1200 resolution via Canon’s LCoS and AISYS technologies) is impressive, with gamma adjustable and grayscale detail that medical professionals will probably find even more impressive than I did.
Canon is showing various Realis configurations for all sorts of applications in its various demos—immersive in a dome, 3D, medical, and much more. Worth taking a gander at during your InfoComm wanderings.
